International technology group ANDRITZ has successfully started up a stock preparation system supplied to Vinda Personal Care (Guangdong) Co., Ltd., as part of its tissue production at the mill in Yangjiang, Guangdong, China. With this new line, there are now more than 20 stock preparation systems from ANDRITZ operating in different mills belonging to the Vinda Group.

The new system comprises specific lines for NBKP (Needle Bleached Kraft Pulp), LBKP (Leaf Bleached Kraft Pulp) and bagasse as raw material. ANDRITZ installed the complete stock preparation system, with equipment for low-consistency (LC) pulping, low-consistency (LC) refining, high-consistency (HC) refining, the approach flow system, and broke handling. Two innovative 120 bdmt/d HC refining systems, each consisting of an ANDRITZ Pulp Screw Press and an HC refiner, enable excellent processing of the special raw material mix and ensure superior tissue properties at a minimized NBKP content.

Mr. Dong Yiping, Executive Director of Vinda International Holdings Limited, says: “With the new ANDRITZ HC refining systems, we achieve better fiber quality in terms of strength, softness and absorbency compared to a conventional LC system in a similar tissue application. Our customers gave very positive feedback as to handfeel and softness of the final product – further proof that our decision to trust in ANDRITZ again was absolutely right.”

Vinda Personal Care (Guangdong) Co., Ltd., part of the Vinda Group, is one of the top four tissue producers in China. The Vinda Group provides high-quality hygiene products and services and operates four core business segments with the key brands Vinda, Tempo, Tork, TENA, Dr. P, Libresse, VIA, Libero, and Drypers.

International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Volga Pulp and Paper Mill in Balakhna, Nizhnij Novgorod Region, Russia, to supply a new OCC line as well as to convert its PM 6, a newsprint paper machine, to a packaging paper machine. Start-up is scheduled for the spring of 2023.

After the conversion, PM 6 will produce packaging paper from a unique mix of OCC and TMP fibers – a groundbreaking raw material composition for the production of packaging paper. Volga Pulp and Paper Mill is currently producing packaging paper from 100% TMP fibers and has now opted for this innovative solution to save resources. The rebuilt PM 6 will have an annual production capacity of 140,000 tons and a design speed of up to 720 m/min, producing lightweight fluting and testliner in the range of 65–120 gsm. The rebuild includes the paper machine approach flow system, the forming, press and dryer sections, including the steam and condensate system, a new PrimeFilm film press, some of the paper machine drives, as well as the complete tail threading system and the slitter rewinder.

The new OCC line will process local OCC (Old Corrugated Containers) and feature a capacity of 400 bdmt/d. ANDRITZ will supply all of the main equipment, from bale receiving to the dump chest, including a FibreFlow Drum pulper (type FFD350EE), which is a complete pulping system in one unit. The new drum pulper will ensure superior accept quality thanks to the gentle pulping concept and efficient removal of coarse contaminants with minimum fiber loss. Furthermore, the drum pulping technology is a perfect match for the upcoming changes in raw material and for furnish with increasing reject content. The OCC line will be delivered with an extended scope, including fractionation, screening, cleaning, and pumps as well as automation and electrification equipment with a DCS from ANDRITZ.

The ANDRITZ scope includes supervision of the mechanical installation work, commissioning, and start-up assistance.

In 2020, Volga Pulp and Paper Mill successfully started up a new TMP line supplied by ANDRITZ. This repeat order further strengthens the fruitful long-term relationship between the two companies.

CEO of Volga Pulp and Paper Mill Sergey Pondar says: ”The smooth start-up of our TMP line one year ago convinced us that ANDRITZ would once again be the right partner for us. The conversion of PM 6 will be an even more ambitious project, especially in view of the tight time frame.”

JSC Volga is one of the largest Russian newsprint producers and mainly uses 100% TMP as furnish. The company is also one of the top 200 exporting companies in Russia, ranking among the top 50 companies in the Russian forestry industry and the top 100 companies in the Nizhnij Novgorod region.

ANDRITZ Inc., a member of international technology Group ANDRITZ, has been selected by Domtar Corporation to provide equipment and technical services for conversion of a power boiler and a recovery boiler at their Kingsport paper mill, in Kingsport, TN, USA. This mill will be converted into Domtar’s first packaging facility.

As part of this state-of-the-art conversion, the Kingsport Mill needed to repurpose their steam generation equipment. ANDRITZ will convert an existing recovery boiler into a natural gas-fired power boiler with back-up fuel oil capability by supplying the main equipment, including low NOx burners and associated fuel and air systems. ANDRITZ will also provide equipment for the mill to modify an existing bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) power boiler so that it can accommodate a change in fuels from wood and sludge firing to corrugated cardboard (OCC) rejects, natural gas, and fuel oil firing.

The scope of supply also includes boiler cleaning devices, pressure part upgrades, material handling equipment, air/flue gas system upgrades, and environmental equipment to enable the mill to meet the highest environmental standards.

ANDRITZ’s extensive experience with multi-fuel boilers and air pollution control were decisive reasons for Domtar to award the order to ANDRITZ.

Once completed, Domtar’s Kingsport Mill will become North America’s premier lightweight containerboard facility – able to produce over 600,000 tons of high-quality recycled linerboard and corrugated medium annually. This level of capacity will make the Kingsport machine the second largest in North America for recycled containerboard.

International technology Group ANDRITZ has launched CircleToZero®, a holistic program for the pulp-producing industry with the goal of providing strong support to customers in their efforts to achieve maximum, sustainable production, aiming at zero emissions and zero waste production. Pairing in-house innovations with ANDRITZ’s proven and state-of-the-art technologies, CircleToZero will enable the pulp-producing industry to either eliminate or make use of side streams in pulp production and convert by-products into new added-value products. 

The ANDRITZ A-Recovery+ program already established is a major part of CircleToZero®. It unleashes the economic potential of the many traditionally unused side streams found in the recovery island of chemical pulp mills. These include purifying raw methanol into commercial quality bio-methanol for instance, on-site production of sulfuric acid, and recovery of kraft lignin. With this newly developed technology, ANDRITZ is helping Södra Cell Mönsterås pulp mill to become the first ever fossil-free biomethanol plant worldwide and also be climate-positive by the end of this decade.

Sharad Tak, founder and principal partner of ST Paper: "We partnered with ANDRITZ because they offered state-of-the-art tissue machine technologies with a focus on optimized energy consumption and a commitment to achieve our project goals.”

Joseph Guadagno, ANDRITZ Vice President Tissue and Air Systems, North America, adds: “We are very pleased that ST Paper selected ANDRITZ as a trusted partner. The relationship developed with the ST Paper team on past projects contributed to this success”.

ST Paper acquired Verso Corporation’s idled Duluth mill in May, with the intention to convert the mill’s production from specialty paper grades to tissue. ST Paper has already successfully converted two fine paper machines into tissue machines at its Franklin, Virginia facility. ANDRITZ was a key supplier to ST Paper on both PM 5 & PM 6 rebuild projects at the Franklin mill, with the supply of the Yankee hoods and complete air systems for both rebuilds, including one of the widest Yankee hoods in the world at 8.43 m (332”) hood width installed on PM 6.

This order once again confirms ANDRITZ’s strong market position as one of the leading suppliers of machines and systems to the North American tissue industry and ANDRITZ’s expertise specifically in wide tissue machines and energy-saving components.
